In the five years since Victoria Wood's death, one great sadness has been the realisation that we'll never again be surprised by new material from her.

But now, as part of the research for the Sunday Times bestselling and critically acclaimed biography Let's Do It, her official biographer, Jasper Rees uncovered a treasure chest of unseen work. From her first piece of comic prose written for her school magazine through to material written for the great TV specials of her maturity and beyond, the store of her writing is full of secret gems that span nearly half a century.

This is a unique and intimate insight into the working of a singular comedy talent.

From the first to the last, these are words that no one else could have written, which will make you laugh in the way that only she could.

Since her death in 2016 at only 62, her work has continued to pulse through the British bloodstream.
